On tap poured into snifter at The Radisson "Resort at the Port" near Cape Canaveral - hotel bar.
Appearance: White foam that died down pretty quickly - very little lacing. Beer was a golden yellow with hints of orange.
Smell: Some earthy hops with hints of hay and a hint of malt. Rather mild.
Taste: Well balanced - nothing very strong. Reminded me of a Red Stripe in it's flavor (some earthiness towards the end of the sip). Malt is not too sweet, nor are the hops too bitter.
Mouthfeel: Nothing special. Some carbonation on the tongue and not too watery. Went down easy.
Drinkability: Went very well with crabcakes for dinner. Had two and could have had another.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear golden with a good head. Very good lacing and retention. Light nose of slightly sweet biscuit over subtle notes of tropical hops. Very nice medium body for a lager with a touch of creamy texture. Above average carbonation level that imparts a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is well balanced and also clean and crisp. It begins with a light biscuit sweetness that flows into a crisp effervescent light bitterness. Behind the bitterness is a light tropical tartness from the hops. The finish is crisp and effervesces into a slight dryness.

I love this beer but cannot get this to pour with a nice head. The head is very thin and gone way too quickly. If it had a better head it would improve its rating.
If anyone out there has found a way to pour this beer and generate a good, long lasting head I would love to hear about it.
I'm glad that I was introduced to Longboard and can get it 5,000 miles from its source.
